Level 3 Communications has enabled two national intercity rings (backbones) in southern Europe designed to provide increased connectivity and scalability of services in France and Spain. The national backbones are made possible by the creation of two new, diverse points of presence (PoPs) in Toulouse, France, a new market Level 3 has entered in response to increased demand for communications services from the region’s high-tech industry.

The new PoPs are located at major traffic aggregation points in Toulouse and enable Level 3 to deliver a wider range of services to customers in France and Spain, including Ethernet private line (EPL) and wavelength transport services, high-speed Internet protocol (HSIP), direct Internet access (DIA) and virtual private network (VPN), as well as content and media delivery services.

In creating the new PoPs in Toulouse, Level 3 has effectively split one of its larger network rings, which previously spanned France and Spain, into two smaller rings. The network enhancement still offers the original connectivity. Level 3’s network in Europe presently spans 21 countries and offers connectivity in 48 markets.
